"New" Clean Blue TX Title

I was talking to a guy about a rebuild he did on a bike. Said he originally bought the bike w/ a salvage title but went down to the court and now has a clean blue title. Is this legit or would you have challenges getting insurance, etc on something like this?

To be more specific, a reconditioned title is a blue title in the state of texas and can be free of leins (clean), however, it does mean that the vehicle was previously damaged mechanically or cosmetically to the point where insurance claimed the vehicle a total loss. Then it was rebuilt by someone else, and inspected and registered again as a drivable vehicle.

So it has a clean blue reconditioned texas title.

Would I have trouble getting insurance on a reconditioned title ?

No you wont have trouble. My title is rebuilt i believe that is the term. However, in the event of an acccident i think you wont get the return or "coverage" for the bike, although you can discuss that with your insurance agent before buying the policy, I only have had liability in the past under the assumption that with full coverage they'd never really give me what my bike is worth (to me) even though I bought something that someone bought as a 1st bike and didnt know how to ride so they dropped it and scratched up the tank a bit

Depends on the insurance company and level of coverage

These days, with vehicle history so easy to get, it's tough to hide a salvage title.

I think salvage bikes are best used for track/racing where spills are inevitable and cosmetic blemishes a non-issue.

As street bikes, well, as long as you are willing to live with the big hit on resale and having to make sure the repairs are done right for safety reasons.
